Mental, Emotional and Verbal "Karate"

Most bullying prevention involves conveying to kids how hurtful it can be and hoping those doing it will stop, and having consequences if they don't.  Teaching young people to have Unconditional Self-Acceptance (USA) and an Internal Locus of Control are often missing from such prevention programs.  Our thoughts about our life events cause how we feel, not the events. We all have cognitive choices that we make that really determine how we feel about ourselves and anything else, that we alone make.
